Yes, that is a title to a Robbie Williams song *grin*
There are books out there *waves hand wildly* that make you think, books that wring every drop of emotion from you and leave you exhausted...and then there are books that simply say 'Let Me Entertain You'. These are books that you don't actually require conscious thought to read. Like those movies that have the unwritten subtext: 'To fully enjoy this movie, please disengage your brain at the door'.I like those movies, especially when my brain has been over thinking (which is most of the time I will grant you) and I just want to sit and vegetate and...be entertained. And I concur, when you're not in the mood to vegetate, such movies strip you of a number of hours of your life that you will never get back, but they have their place *grin* And so too do their book 'brothers'.
I was talking to a friend this morning about Twilight, which is current 'In Transit' to my local library. I've heard many and varied things about Twilight and I think I've come to the conclusion that it is a 'Let Me Entertain You' book. Now, I could be completely wrong; I'm more than happy for the book to prove me wrong.
But, I'm curious - have you ever read a book that screams out 'Let Me Entertain You'? (Not literally though, because that would be slightly scary.)
